pikachu-I'm with you on this! I've been at this job 3 years and no raise. The reason is the economy. Although the economy hasn't held him from taking trips to Europe and only coming in for 2 1/2 hours a day. I get to field calls and complaints. I've been looking but am finding that I'm over-qualified. I say "let ME be the judge of that!" What gets me through is that I believe that tomorrow will be better than today was.
